Free Modula-2 Compilers

Free compilers for the Modula 2 language


Free Modula-2 Compilers

Modula-2 is a general purpose programming language created by Niklaus Wirth (creator of the Pascal language). The compilers (with or without an integrated development environment or editor) listed here either implement the ISO version of the Modula-2 language or the language defined in Wirth's Programming in Modula-2 (often referred to as "PIM").

Objective Modula-2

This compiler implements a subset of the original Modula-2 language as defined by Wirth, along with object oriented extensions. It is primarily aimed at Cocoa (Mac OS X) and GNUstep development (Unix-type systems). The object model in this compiler is based on Smalltalk's object model. It generates Objective C source code which can then be compiled by an Objective C compiler into binary. That is, at the time this was written, it does not have a code generator yet, although I'm told one is currently being developed. The source code is provisionally released under a peer review licence (please see their site for details on this). (Warning: the site loads some JavaScript code that may redirect you automatically to some other site instead of the Objective Module-2 site before depositing a cookie. The second time you visit their site, you'll get the real site. It doesn't look as though the author of the site is aware of this behaviour of the third-party javascript code he uses.)

GNU Modula-2

The GNU Modula-2 compiler implements the ISO Modula-2 language and is also able to compile the language defined in Wirth's Programming in Modula-2 (editions 2, 3 and 4). It uses the GNU C++ compiler to compile portions of the code. Interestingly, it can also be built as a cross compiler for the AVR and ARM The program is currently available in source form only and can be compiled on Unix-type systems like Linux, Mac OS X, Sparc Solaris and also Windows via Cygwin.

Gardens Point Modula

The Gardens Point Modula compiler implements the Modula-2 language on Linux, FreeBSD, Sparc, and Windows (via Cygwin or CLR/NET). It follows for the most part the language given in the ISO standard, although there are deviations. (Please see the documentation for details.)

Ulm's Modula-2 System

Ulm's Modula-2 System comprises a Modula-2 compiler, Modula-2 beautifier, Modula-2 debugger, a Modula-2 tags utility (like ctags for C), an LALR(1) parser generator for Modula-2, a Modula-2-Prolog interpreter, and a Pascal to Modula-2 translator. It is distributed under the terms of the GNU GPL (compiler and tools) and the GNU LGPL (library). It supports SPARCv8/Solaris 2.x and MC68020/SunOS 4.1x.

Native XDS-x86 Personal Edition Modula-2 / Oberon-2 Development Toolset

This is a free optimizing ISO Modula-2 and Oberon-2 compiler that runs on Windows and Linux. It allows you to use third party C libraries, access the operating system's API, etc.

Megamax Modula-2 for Atari ST

Megamax Modula-2 is a compiler for the Atari ST that is now released as freeware. It comes with complete source code for the libraries, compiler, linker, editors, etc. The documentation, in German, can also be downloaded from that site.

M2F Modula-2 Compiler

This is a complete Modula-2 compiler that is compliant with the second edition of Niklaus Wirth's Programming In Modula-2. It generates code for the Intel i86 family of processors and can even pipeline Pentium code. Source code is available. Precompiled binaries are available for Linux.

Maclogimo Plus

This is an unsupported Macintosh 68k Modula-2 compiler. It includes a compiler, linker, library modules and a loader. It generates native 68k code.

MacMETH

This is a Modula-2 programming environment for the Macintosh that is purportedly fast. It comprises a compiler, linker, dynamic linking-loader, symbolic debugger and editor.

Modula-2 Compiler for IRIX

This is a Modula-2 compiler for IRIX released under the GNU GPL. It seems to be in a "Pre-Alpha" stage, with no new developments to the compiler since 2001.
